Roving Pittsburgher Report, "39 Steps" is Non-Stop Hilarity! 

If you want side splitting laugh a minute entertainment then see Tony Award Winning Hit Comedy thriller, "39 Steps" at the Cabaret Theater.  What an uproarious experience in minimalistic stage effects with maximum hilarity. Four players take you through the twists and turns of a comedic plot using 1940's or Mel Brooks type music spots to hi-light the intense "drama."  Sorry, no drama just madcap hysteria.

Positively Pittsburgh Pick of the Week, Loudini Rock and Roll Circus Podcast Interviews and Music


Positively Pittsburgh Pick of the Week


Loudini Rock and Roll Circus Podcast

Albany Down The Outer Reach - 2016-06-16 22:27:08.002-04



The Loudini Rock and Roll Circus Music Podcast
Hosted by Lou Lombardi aka Loudini & Katie Simone
Featured Album: Albany Down The Outer Reach





Lou and Katie discuss and play some samples from the new album London Rockers Albany Down. Featured artists are Albany Down,  Typhoid Rosie , and Dead27s





Albany Down
http://www.albanydownband.com/
London-based Albany Down are a contemporary rock band with influences ranging from classic acts like Led Zeppelin and Thunder to modern bands such as The Black Keys and Clutch.  They combine a vintage rock-blues sensitivity with a contemporary aggressive energy.

Albany Down are Paul Muir on vocals, guitarist Paul Turley, drummer Donna Peters and bassist Billy Dedman and they have already recorded two albums with award-winning producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, INME, Super Furry Animals).

“These guys are really going somewhere; make sure they take you with them!" – Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2

The band is a hard-working, road-tested outfit, which has been well received at various UK festivals including the Maryport International Rock and Blues Festival; The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival (Colne); and The Great British Rock and Blues Festival (Skegness); as well as at venues like Barfly Camden and the legendary 100 Club.

< div style="text-align: justify;">In 2014, they toured the UK supporting New Jersey’s Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes, which included the highlight of their year when they played at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.  This was followed by appearances at festivals in Belgium and the Netherlands before a very successful tour of Germany with The Brew.

Blues Rock Review offered a fair assessment of both the band and their 2011 debut album: “South of the City” is a solid debut album from Albany Down and they will be an interesting band to watch develop in the coming years”.  The album clearly showcased what the band are capable of – ranging from the superbly arranged “Mercy” to the low-down dirty, slide-led blues epic of the title track.

Their formidable second album, “Not Over Yet”, released in 2013, is full of their strongest songs, lingering melodies and great musicianship.  And where vocalist Paul Muir could previously have been compared to the likes of Paul Rodgers, he stamps his own personality on this album, while guitarist Paul Turley produces a virtuoso impassioned performance.  Traditionally a band’s second album is regarded as being problematical but Albany Down turned that notion on its head.

Their live show never disappoints.  The band run on pure adrenalin, unrelenting energy and raw emotion and soon have any crowd entranced.  The music is based on thunderous guitar riffs and pounding drums juxtaposed with soulful, soaring, emotionally-charged ballads.

Rock blogger Neil Mach p robably got it right, when he recently described the band; “As hot as volcanic ash and yet as cool as snow slippers.”

“Not Over Yet” is an aptly titled album and an accurate barometer of a band on the up-escalator currently tearing up venues around the UK and Europe.  Having already generated over 7,500 Facebook fans, the band are due to start work on their third studio album in 2015. 

Both Albany Down albums, “South of The City” (2011) and “Not Over Yet” (2013) are available for download on iTunes and Amazon.

“Albany Down is the new voice of British rock music.  A blend of contemporary rock and blues – with added brill iance on top.  See for yourself.”

Dead27s
http://www.dead27s.com/
On their first-ever attempt at writing together, Dead 27s came up with a batch of songs that perfectly embody the Charleston-based band’s powerfully charged blend of rock-and-soul. Sprung from an all-night songwriting session on the coast of Sout h Carolina, several of those songs made their way onto Dead 27s’ acclaimed debut EP Chase Your Devils Down. With the rest of the tracks set to appear on the band’s first full-length album (due out this year), Dead 27s have brought a sharp sense of songcraft to the loose but potent musicality that’s propelled the band since the first time they shared a stage.

The earliest incarnation of the band came to life in spring 2012, when Francis, Mullinax, Evans and Goldstein teamed up for a set at a local festival. Although the four had never played together, they instantly felt an undeniable chemistry that turned what was meant to be a one-time collaboration into a series of shows and—once Crider joined the lineup—the eventual founding of the band. Seeking a name for the event, the band began to brainstorm ideas and decided to pay homage to the dead 27s, a group of musicians known for leaving an indelible mark on American music. The name stuck more for the appreciation of pushing musical boundaries and leaving nothing on the table at live shows, than a direct mirroring of any of the 27s club members sound.
In the music of Dead 27s, a mutual appreciation for early American blues (Johnson), psychedelic rock-and-roll (Hendrix), punk-minded modern rock (Cobain), and painfully charged soul (Winehouse) merges with a shared passion for pushing into new sonic terrain. In the making of Chase Your Devils Down, that meant forging a groove-powered sound that’s gutsy and urgent but graced with a sophisticated lyrical sensibility. “One of our goals is to take people on a ride,” says Francis of Dead 27s’ ever-shifting dynamic. “We wanna smack you in the face with some heavy guitar, then take it down with something quieter and softer and much more intimate.

The emotional element of Chase Your Devils Down also proves complexly textured, with Dead 27s exploring themes of overcoming struggle in love and everyday living. “All the songs are based on the idea that no matter what life throws at you—whether it’s in your job, your relationships, or just struggles you may have internally—you’ve got to take what you can from the experience, and don’t let it get the best of you,” Francis says.

Released in spring 2014, Chase Your Devils Down earned Dead 27s the Charleston City Paper Music Awards’ Song of the Year prize two years in a row, thanks to the breezy heart-on-sleeve R&B of “Don’t Want to Live My Life Without You” and the riff-driven swagger of “Don't Comfort Me.” Since the EP’s release, Dead 27s have also found themselves ranked in the top 24 of VH1’s “Make a Band Famous” competition and touring with the likes of Galactic, The Revivalists, Earphunk, Marcus King Band and Tab Benoit.
For Dead 27s—who’ve fast gained a reputation as an incendiary live act—each show serves as a breeding ground for creativity and a vessel for sonic expansion. Fueled by their unabashed belief in delivering a kinetic, thrillingly unpredictable set night after night, the band revels in the transcendent imperfection that comes from fully immersing themselves in the moment. And more often than not, says Mullinax, those beautiful mistakes help guide the band to their next creative breakthrough. “Playing a song live takes it out of the vacuum of the practice room, and provides a connection with an audience that informs how the song wi ll be used in the future,” he points out.

With their following on the rise and the band supporting bigger acts and performing at larger festivals (including FloydFest this July), Dead 27s’ love of playing live ultimately connected them with Ben Ellman, the Grammy nominated New Orleans-based producer and member of the funk/rock act Galactic. Ellman was enlisted as producer on their forthcoming full-length debut and—in creating the album—dedicated themselves to capturing the raw, untamable energy of their live show. “With the new record, the one thing we knew for a fact was we didn’t want to make it all shiny-clean—we wanted big guitars, big drums, a whole spectrum of feeling,” notes Evans. The album also finds Dead 27s further broadening their sound by diving deeper into merging elements of psych-rock, throwback-soul and fuzz -funk. “One of the coolest things about this band is we always want to evolve, try new things, go in new directions we haven’t tried before,” says Mullinax. “It’s what keeps the music fresh, and what keeps the whole experience exciting for everyone involved.”


Critics are saying...

"Anyone who claims that rock and soul ain’t what it used to be clearly hasn’t heard of these stunning musicians. This will remind you of soul and blues from the late 60’s – with rock from the early 70’s. But probably the most compelling quality of the Dead 27s is how seamlessly they stay true to the pure, old school rock and soul sounds while making their music cutting edge relevant to toda y’s listeners."  
JamSphere - 2015

"...Creative and timeless music with impassioned veracity...a refreshing blend of song-craft and musicianship..."
Terry Adams, Charleston Magazine, May 2014  

"I want to hear it in an American-made car, with the top down, tearing down the highway...it's something special...a no frills straight forward rock and soul album that showcases the talents of one of Charleston's best live bands"
Devin Grant, Charleston Grit, May 2014

"...the album incorporates some delicious musical influences with a fresh approach that leaves you wanting more and h itting the replay button often."
Robert Loughry, Bright Lights Big City Talent Management, May 2014

"(Don't Want To Live My Life WIthout You)...comes off like a perfect hit — it’s catchy and infectious, yet so guilt-free that it could only be created by a band who bows down at the altar of Hendrix, but isn’t afraid to write a pop song a la Mayer Hawthorne."
Stratton Lawrence, Charleston City Paper, March 06, 2013

"Dead 27s are developing their own sound, and they credit their own relaxed attitude, the ease with which they jam with each other, and the addition of the talented Trey Francis as major factors in shaping their latest original material."
Jared Bo oth, Charleston City Paper, August 01, 2012

Loudini Interviews FROOMADOR - 2016-06-20 06:38:38.623-04



Combining an acoustic sound with the electrical pulse of Indie Rock, Froomador’s unique songwriting approach leaves room for the listener’s own interpretation. His latest album, “Can’t This Wait” includes the single “Solar Energy” for which there is a climatic music video that has been filmed in the Arizona desert, and has just been released in early 2016.






Orlando native Ryan Froom credits his passion for music to his father whom he watched simultaneously play the guitar and sing at church during his early childhood. By the age of 10 he had his first guitar and was 12 years old when he wrote his first song. His father introduced him to the “The Doobie Brothers”, “Beach Boys", and “The Beatles” during his early teens in which Ryan also began to sensationalize the sport of surfing. Heavily influenced by the beachy tunes, Ryan acquired a palate for the soothing sounds of the ukulele, and began to incorporate them into his songs. During his early high school days, he recalls sneaking into his older brother’s melancholy record collection and discovering the sound of “The Cure”, “The Smiths”, and “Nirvana”. It was then that Ryan also began to incorporate the electric guitar into his songwriting sessions.


At the age of 23, Ryan moved to Argentina and would spend the next eight months learning Spanish and being surrounded by Latin Jazz and Flamenco. By the age of 24, he lived a few months in Brazil where he would also learn to speak Portuguese and develop an interest in Brazilian samba and the sassy Latin tunes, inspiring him to write and record his album “Pavement Ends” several years later. In 2009, he enrolled in the prestigious school of music “Berklee” in Boston where he would focus on Jazz Composition and classical arrangements for the next year and a half.

Froomador has performed live in several cities including Hollywood and Claremont, CA, Washington D.C., and countless venues in his hometown Orlando, FL, where he currentl y resides. Along with the release of his album “Can’t This Wait”, his performance schedule will also be announced.
